I am just wondering how much most people here spend weekly on tickets.

    it depends on which jackpots are high, and if i'm feeling lucky.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        Usually 10 bucks per draw for 5 picks with the multiplier.  If I hit enough to be ahead sufficiently and the jackpot's a big one I'll go higher with the past winnings to try to cover more red ball possibilities.

          I have a MA 104 drawing season ticket for MM ($90 christmas special), and so far I haven't spent more than the 86 cents a drawing that costs. If the jackpot goes above $200 million I'll get 5 QP's each time until it's hit.

            I spend 8 for day & night 4-5days a week less my winning instant tickets which maybe 10-15 dollars 3 maybe for days a week. so in one week I may spend between 50-100 dollars but I hit 2 or 3 times a week for 65 dollars or more. Most of the time I get back what I but out maybe give or take 5 or 10 dollars.

             

            The last 3 weeks I have hit for 200.00 or more every week.

              I spent $20 total on my trip to DC. And I'm proud to say that's the most I've ever spent.

                Right now I'm only playing Louisiana Lotto on Wednesday and Friday for a $1 each time. I occasionally, not more than once every 3-4 months or so, get a scratch ticket and when Powerball gets up above $100 million, I buy one or two and if there are Powerball pools going on at work, I'm always in them.

                  by this, i mean that if the jackpot is high, considering the odds. for example, mega millions is at $63 million for tonight, and i have 5 tickets. rolling cash 5 is $718,000 for tonight, but i have 20 tickets. make sense?

                    Probably does to most of the DB users, judging from their comments elsewhere on the board.  I'll confess, Doctor, it's a mystery to me.  But I'm generally new here.  Likely I'll come around to that way of thinking after I've had a while to catch on.

                    A PB ticket with 5 numbers and a multiplier pays 5 times the standard amount most times when the multiplier is 5.  5 correct picks without the red ball is $100K without the multiplier, maybe $500K with it.  For a $10 ticket.  Odds are about 1:1.3 million.  Probably not a lot different than on your rolling cash 5, but half the price of your 20 tickets.

                    But I see every poster on this DB bemoaning the 5 number bonus, wishing it wasn't there.  I guess I have a ways to go to come around to understanding that reasoning.

                      If PB ever gets that high again.
